    Pros

    Flexible schedule, no required over-time, ability to move up.

    Cons

    Because it is a huge company they can't be as picky as they should with who they hire. This leads to incompetent or unmotivated colleagues and mirco-management in a misguided attempt to make up for it.

    Advice to Management

    Find ways to motivate a now lackadaisical retail workforce. Increased profit sharing?
